How can we actively work towards equalizing educational opportunities for all students? The goal of Kome Ajise, the Director at the Southern California Association of Governments, is to level the playing field for EVERYONE. Kome will share with us how SCAG is encouraging a more sustainable Southern California, and what their partnerships within the community look like. Through budgeting strategies, developing policies, and internship and fellowships programs, they are offering students more hands-on learning and the opportunity to explore new career possibilities. If we can provide all students with the space and time they need to succeed, then we decrease the barriers to financial stability for many. Tune in to discover how we can provide equitable access to work spaces and transportation to help students reach their goals!
